If you grew up in a pre-internet world like we did, then you probably searched every single corner of your PC for entertainment.

Once you'd finished all levels of Chip's Challenge for a second time, you probably happened upon the endlessly artistic world of MS Paint.

Like Photoshop, but without any of the useful tools or slick interface, it gave us a whole afternoon's worth of activities. Since the internet came and stole all of our time, we've cruelly cast it aside.

Bravely picking it back up again, Reddit user Manmalade (real name Rene-Louis Baron) has been wowing the internets with his stunning portraits of musicians, using just MS Paint.

He even did one specially for us, which you can see below. Jaws on the floor.
